Chelsea tipped to down Liverpool in big EPL round five opener

Fri, Sep 16, 2:20pm by Staff Writer

Chelsea and Liverpool open the fifth round of the Premier League on Friday in a match that promises plenty of drama.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool downed the London club 3-1 this time last year, but should come up against a very different side when the travel to Stanford Bridge this week.

Now under manager Antonio Conte, Chelsea are second on the EPL ladder behind Manchester City, and will likely feature the return of Brazilian defender David Luiz in place of the injured John Terry.

William Hill is paying $2.30 for Chelsea to continue its strong form, with $3.25 for a Liverpool win, the draw is at  $3.40.

Manchester City should have little trouble downing Bournemouth at home on Saturday, even without suspended forward Sergio Aguero.

City are the only undefeated team this season after beating local rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford 2-1 last week. Pep Guardiola`s side followed it up with a resounding 4-0 victory Borussia Moenchengladbach the Champions League during the week..

City are $1.28 to remain undefeated, with a whopping $10 on offer for a Bournemouth win and $5.50 for the draw.

Also Saturday, third-placed Everton are favourites to beat newly promoted Middlesbrough at home.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku looks set to make for a prolific season and William Hill is offering just $1.70 for the side to win, with $5.50 for Middlesbrough and $3.60 for the draw.

Manchester United is coming off losses to City and Dutch side Feyenoord in the last week, but are still tipped to make short work of Watford on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho made eight changes for the United side that lost at Feyenoord, but says he’ll return to his regular line-up for Watford.

“It’s obvious we left [Antonio] Valencia and [Luke] Shaw back to play and to be fresh,” Mourinho said. “So we go back to a normal team obviously without so many changes.

Tottenham rounds out the EPL top five and is clear the favourite to beat Sunderland on Sunday.

Spurs lost to AS Monaco in the Champions League on Wednesday, but Sunderland are struggling for points and should not pose any difficulties for the London club.

William Hill has Tottenham at $1.30 to win at home, with $11 to Sunderland and $5 for the draw.

In other matches on Saturday, Arsenal is paying $1.57 to down Hull at Hull, with $6 for the loss and 1.80 for a draw.

Defending champion Leicester is expected to hold out Burnley at home, with just $1.50 on offer for the win, $6.50 for a loss and $4.20 for the draw.

In one of the tightest matches of the round, West Bromwich Albion are slight favourites to beat West Ham in Birmingham, paying $2.50 for a win and just $2.85 for a loss with $3.20 for a draw.

Crystal Palace is paying $1.95 to beat Stoke in London, with $4.20 for a loss and $3.25 for a draw, while Southampton should beat Swansea at home at $1.66 for a win, $5.50 for a loss and $3.60 for the draw.

The Liverpool vs Chelsea match kicks off at 5am Saturday AEST.

Suggested Bet: Chelsea to continue its strong start with another win: $2.30
